Young Research & Education

The interdisciplinary field of Information Science promotes the emergence of new generations of researchers able to cross borders between fields of knowledge thus answering some current challenging needs for formation. 

To this end, and based on general BITrum's scientific objectives, we promote technical, academic, societal and financial support for young researchers and postgrad programmes within information sciences. Our aims are to:
  1. set up the basic grounding for an effective interdisciplinar academic field, able to be fruitful and selfregenerating;
  2. promote new auspicious proposals under guidance of experts;
  3. facilitate that social interests can be reflected in research and its dissemination.
